Title – Do Not Disturb
Author – A.R. Torre (Alessandra Torre)
Publication Date – April 21, 2015
Series – Deanna Madden, #2
Equal parts Dexter and 50 Shades, this is the eagerly awaited follow-up to the daring erotic thriller, The Girl in 6E, by A.R. Torre.
The rules were simple and I broke them.
Now I must face the consequences.
Everyone else must face me.
While I stumbled upon Torre’s work for the erotica that she writes, I’ve found myself falling in love with her psychological thrillers. The Deanna Madden series just has a quality about it that makes the books difficult to not be drawn into. They are equal parts thrilling, sexy, and addicting! Do Not Disturb left me immersed in Deanna’s world, drowning in its pages, and eager for more the moment it ended.
“Star light. Star bright. First star I see tonight.”
Deanna is just as spunky, yet loveable, as she was in The Girl in 6E. There is something about her personality that intrigues me and makes me want to know more about her, even if she has unusual tendencies and urges. I really loved that this book was more about her pushing out of her comfort zone. Her psychiatrist may not have agreed, but those morsels of the outside world satisfied some unknown craving that I had when it came to her character. Watching those manifestations of her desires in juxtaposition of the development of her conscious were absolutely brilliant, and it was those scenes that truly brought this character to life for me.
“I wish I may, wish I might.”
Do Not Disturb had so many of the same elements as the first in the series, yet it was completely different. As sick as this may sound, I found myself loving the way her urges come to fruition. There is a Dexter-like (the television show) quality to it in that it’s the bad guys that suffer. I think that redeeming quality to her desire to kill is what makes me like her so much. Although I don’t find myself actually killing people, Deanna is somehow, maybe eerily, relatable. She becomes a hero, rather than a murderer.
“Not kill those whom my heart holds tight.”
If there is one thing I know to be true, it’s to never doubt the work of Alessandra Torre. She is always delivering a powerful, jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat tale that will leave you salivating for more. If you’re a fan of the movie Boondock Saints, or love a little walk on the thrilling side, I highly recommend you get lost in Do Not Disturb and maybe, just like me, you’ll find yourself realigning your moral compass!
